As followers of Jesus, it is imperative that we are continually in the Word of God. It is important that we fill our minds with things that are beneficial, otherwise we will fill them with whatever it is we spend our time doing. We can slowly begin moving away from Christ without even realizing it. Daily time in God’s Word allows God to reveal himself to us each and every day. Personally, I have been amazed at how many times that God reveals something new either in my personal devotion time or in my sermon preparation. Pastor Cindy and I sometimes find ourselves asking “did you ever catch this before?”
If you are like many, you know that it is beneficial to be in God’s Word, but you don’t know where to start. I want to introduce a tool that I have used before to you, the Bible in One Year app. It is available in the Apple App Store as well as the Google Play Store. It is a simple app that each day shows us what to read that day, including something from the Wisdom literature, New Testament, and Old Testament. I find this to be a great way to get into Scripture without just starting at the beginning of Genesis, as it is too easy to lose focus through some of the early books.
I hope this is helpful to someone, but please let me know if you are looking for bible reading and study ideas. I am happy to help all get deeper into God’s Word.
